An obsequious young man becomes attached to a surgeon and his children to the extent that he begins to interfere in their lives. Little by little, however, his admiration and complicity turn into a veiled threat.

After Dogtooth and The Lobster (Audience Award at the 2015 Strasbourg Festival), Yorgos Lanthimos continues his terrifying exploration of social and family relationships. And like most major filmmakers, he develops from one work to the next a strong identity between formal rigour, chilling distance and black humour. The Greek director is thus building an indefinable filmography with works located within the boundaries of genre cinema and bordering on the fantastic.
